One of the most notable things about the incredible performance from Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is the calm demeanor he displayed, no matter what the circumstance. The guy was simply cool as ice under pressure – more pressure than most athletes could ever imagine experiencing.
The entire city of Philadelphia has been desperate for that elusive Super Bowl, and their fans are passionate to say the least. After franchise QB Carson Wentz went down with a season ending injury, the focus turned straight to Foles. He was under the microscope of all microscopes, yet by watching him you’d think it was just another stroll in the park. So how’d he manage to remain so calm and put on one of the most epic performances in NFL history, and out duel the greatest QB in NFL history?
Well, here’s a glimpse into the heart of Nick Foles, and it is firmly centered on Jesus:
It’s incredible to think just two years ago, Foles was considering hanging up his cleats once and for all. Even before the biggest game of his life, he still had his faith front and center, telling reporters that once he hangs up his cleats his desire is to be a pastor for high school aged youth.
His clutch performance places him in Philadelphia sports royalty as a legend – but we have a feeling his best work is yet to come.
